Chemistry.Com is a sister site of Match.Com. This website is an alternative to online personals. and unlike matchmaking services like eHarmony, they don't judge you and they try not to overpromise. They have a personality test that was developed by Dr. Helen Fisher specifically for Chemistry.Com. The system uses a 56 statement questionnaire to place people into four broad personality styles, Explorer, Builder, Director, and Negotiator. The site tries to pair members specifically for long-term relationships. They focus on 'Compatibility' and 'Chemistry' which is where the name of the site comes from.
Dr. Helen Fisher posted the following comments on the site,
" Starting a relationship should be fun. It is good for the mind and body. And, fun is good for love. Did you know any kind of novel game is likely to drive up dopamine in the brain? It's the natural stimulant that can make you more susceptible to romance. So - we have decided to help you get in the mood with a few chemistry starters.
In the beginning of a relationship, you know almost nothing about each other. Which means, you tend to overweigh the few morsels of information you receive. As a result, the getting to know you process is full of breaking points. These little moments take on heavy (and unrealistic) meanings that can send you flying out the door - sometimes too quickly.
Now, thanks to these chemistry starters, you can meet new people in a fun and interesting way. All the while, picking up facts, ideas and points of view about one another that will strengthen your bond. It's our hope this will help you pole vault those early breaking points - guiding you successfully on your journey toward finding the one.
So, in the gaming spirit, I'd like to share my motto with you, "We're here. We're alive. Let's play.""
According to Wikpedia, As of December 2009 Chemistry.com had a user base of 14,000,000 singles, consisting of 47% male to 53% female ratio. 70% of whom were over the age of 35 years old. Fourteen years ago, Match.com changed the world of online personals, dating and relationships, and today serves millions of singles in 24 countries. And claims to be the #1 site for love and dating. Now they have done it again by making a premium offering, Chemistry.com - the online personals site that provides singles robust tools, guidance, advice and insights to help make their first date feel like the second.
In one of Dr. Fisher's studies 100,000 anonymous individuals had their answers to the 56 statement questionnaire analyzed. She found that no two individuals answered the questionnaire exactly the same way. She then concluded that one should not be surprised, since no two people are exactly alike. Dr. Fisher further concluded that there were patterns to nature and there are patterns to personality, and even in the varied group that was studied, all four broad basic personality styles were present however, many variations and combinations were manifested.
